The Animal Hospice Group (AHG) is here for you...
When animal companions approach the end of life, their humans can feel helpless, unsure, and inadequate. The Animal Hospice Group is committed to certifying, training, and advising veterinary team members, practitioners, professionals, and caregivers for better animal end-of-life care. Our goal is to provide comfort for them, and confidence for you through education and support.
Better Care - Options Are Available
The death of an animal companion is painful for caregivers and difficult for practitioners. Even veterinarians have expressed feelings of inadequacy and not knowing what to say. What options are there? Families are often given only three choices: expensive surgeries, short-term medications, or euthanasia. Animal Hospice Group believes we can do better for practitioners, caregivers, and especially...our animal companions.
At AHG, we are here to help.
“If you go through this process [hospice-supported natural death] with courage and grace, I promise that you will no longer fear death, and your perspective on life will be forever changed to one of acceptance and peace. What greater legacy can our animals leave us?”
~ Gail Pope, AHG Founder
